Darwin Harbour
Integrated Report Card

Resilience and Climate Change

Resilience and climate change was identified through stakeholder consultation as being a key value for a healthy Darwin Harbour. Efforts were made to develop indicators to assess resilience and climate change; however, a useful indicator could not be identified for this assessment. Opportunities exist to include indicators for this value in future report cards.

Indicators considered to assess Resilience and Climate Change

Stakeholders identified a variety of potential indicators related to Resilience and Climate Change throughout workshops in Darwin Harbour, including those found in the word cloud to the right. Although they weren't included in the current iteration of the report card, these were agreed upon as important indicators for assessing the health of Darwin Harbour.


Recommendations

Develop indicators to assess the preparedness of the Darwin Harbour region to rising sea levels and storm surges and other targets set in the NT Climate Change Response: Towards 2050.
